Today is Important


A New Day
by
Dr. Heartsill wilson 

This is the beginning of a new day.

I have been given this day to use as I will.

I can waste it, or use it.

I can make it a day long to be remembered for its joy, its beauty and its achievements, or it can be filled with pettiness.

What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

When tomorrow comes this day will be gone forever, but I shall hold something which I have traded for it.

It may be no more than a memory, but if it is a worthy one I shall not regret the price.
I want it to be gain not loss, good not evil, success not failure.

Make the most of today. Make it count, if only in small ways, because small things are the foundation of bigger things.

Thanks for the amazing inspiration. It's all so true. And sometimes forgotten. Like by me yesterday when I was having a down day.
